Press Release

GUILDFORD, U.K., November 16, 2010 – Today the EA Play Label of Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced that the Harry Potter and the Deathly HallowsTM – Part 1 videogame is available to buy on multiple platforms in stores throughout the UK on November 19th.

The Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 videogame is packed from start to finish with action. Players will be on the run, fighting for survival on a desperate and dangerous quest to locate and destroy Voldemort’s Horcruxes, engaging with Death Eaters and Snatchers in epic battle sequences at every turn. To amplify the action, players will encounter ferocious creatures, and will need to muster their most powerful magic against relentless assaults from all sides. No more lessons. No more training. It’s time for players to fight for their lives.

“There’s no doubt that this is the most exhilarating Harry Potter game we’ve made to date,” says Jonathan Bunney, VP, Head of Production at EA Bright LightTM. “The darker tone of the movies and books, together with the rich action storyline of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 and the potential of HD gaming technology, has enabled the development team to give the player more powerful magic, more dangerous enemies and an overall more exciting experience than ever before. It’s an entirely new Harry Potter experience that we believe both fans of the franchise and action games will love.”

Players will, for the first time, be able to use Harry’s wand as the ultimate weapon, unleashing an arsenal of formidable magic to defeat attackers, protect themselves from harm and evade capture. Players will also find a number of potions throughout the world - which can be used in combat and for stealth. A dynamic cover mechanic will enable the tactical player to utilize existing objects as cover, or magically create their own, on the fly. And Harry’s famed Invisibility Cloak will allow players to sneak past more deadly enemies, or get to various points unseen. The game also includes a series of challenges, available from the main menu and separate from the single player campaign, that offers both local and online leaderboards to compare best scores and times across the globe.

Developed by EA Bright Light Studio, the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 videogame is now available for the Xbox 360®, which offers an additional KINECT mode where players can actually cast magic via gestures, PlayStation®3, WiiTM, Nintendo DSTM, Windows PC, and mobile devices.

About the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 film
Part 1 begins as Harry, Ron and Hermione set out on their perilous mission to track down and destroy the secret to Voldemort’s immortality and destruction—the Horcruxes. On their own, without the guidance of their professors or the protection of Professor Dumbledore, the three friends must now rely on one another more than ever. But there are Dark Forces in their midst that threaten to tear them apart.

Meanwhile, the wizarding world has become a dangerous place for all enemies of the Dark Lord. The long-feared war has begun and Voldemort’s Death Eaters seize control of the Ministry of Magic and even Hogwarts, terrorizing and arresting anyone who might oppose them. But the one prize they still seek is the one most valuable to Voldemort: Harry Potter. The Chosen One has become the hunted one as the Death Eaters search for Harry with orders to bring him to Voldemort…alive.

Harry’s only hope is to find the Horcruxes before Voldemort finds him. But as he searches for clues, he uncovers an old and almost forgotten tale—the legend of the Deathly Hallows. And if the legend turns out to be true, it could give Voldemort the ultimate power he seeks.

Little does Harry know that his future has already been decided by his past when, on that fateful day, he became “the Boy Who Lived.” No longer just a boy, Harry Potter is drawing ever closer to the task for which he has been preparing since the day he first stepped into Hogwarts: the ultimate battle with Voldemort.

Press Release

Guildford, UK – November 16, 2010 – The race to #1 heats up! Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) today announced SHIFT 2 UNLEASHEDTM, the next entry in the blockbuster Need for Speed simulation series. The original SHIFT game was released in September 2009 and has sold through close to five million copies globally. Its success was propelled by the revolutionary true driver’s experience -- a game design that was heralded by critics as more visceral, more physical and more intense than any other title in the sim category. Capturing the physicality and brutality of racing at 200mph has been the leading area of innovation by the award-winning development team at Slightly Mad Studios. SHIFT 2 UNLEASHED builds on the true drivers experience by introducing the driver’s battle, an even more authentic and primal feeling of power and speed which elevates the fundamental competitive race into a struggle for supremacy against other drivers and even the track itself. In SHIFT 2 UNLEASHED, players’ hands sweat and ache as they clutch onto the controller, their pulse races from the break-neck speeds experienced through the first-person cockpit view. Launching in Spring 2011, SHIFT 2 UNLEASHED pushes the envelope with the most authentic and intense racing experience in the genre. The world debut trailer of SHIFT 2 UNLEASHED was revealed today as bonus content for the action racing Need for Speed title, Need for Speed Hot Pursuit.

“SHIFT 2 UNLEASHED is redefining immersive racing by blending the rush of tearing up the track at unbelievable speeds with the emotional experience of competitive battle,” said Marcus Nilsson, Executive Producer, SHIFT 2 UNLEASHED. “We are also working closely with real-world performance drivers to ensure that SHIFT 2 UNLEASHED captures their experience and becomes the benchmark in authentic racing action.”

SHIFT 2 UNLEASHED features an all-new rendering engine with a massive graphics overhaul that puts the player in the heart of the racing action. With an innovative helmet camera view simulating the physical experience of driving at 200mph, the thrilling experience of night racing and authentic degradation of tracks and cars, this is tomorrow’s sim for today’s adrenaline fueled racer. SHIFT 2 UNLEASHED also incorporates the next generation of Need for Speed Autolog - the groundbreaking network that connects friends for epic head-to-head races and compares player stats for the ultimate social racing competition.

Developed by the award-winning Slightly Mad Studios, SHIFT 2 UNLEASHED will be available on the Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and PC.

Microsoft Announce Kinect Has Sold 1 Million Units Worldwide In Just 10 Days

Microsoft have announced that Kinect has sold over 1 Million units worldwide in just 10 days. Microsoft have also said that Kinect is still on target to reach 5 Million units sold before the end of the year.

Press Release

REDMOND, Washington—Microsoft today announced it has sold one million Kinect for Xbox 360 units worldwide in 10 days and is on pace to hit five million by the end of the year. The announcement comes a week before the biggest selling day of the year, Black Friday, and in the wake of increasing momentum for Xbox 360, which led U.S. video game console sales for the past four months.*

"We are appreciative of the response we have seen from consumers that has culminated in sales of more than one million units in the first 10 days on the market for Kinect for Xbox 360," said Don Mattrick, president of the Interactive Entertainment Business at Microsoft. "This is a great start to the holiday season, and we will continue to work with our retailer partners to keep pace with high demand and deliver against our plan to sell more than five million Kinect sensors worldwide by the end of this year."

"There were lines of customers at our stores all over the country on the night of the Kinect launch, and thousands more are trying it for themselves in our stores every day."
-Chris Homeister, Best Buy

Before the Kinect launch, Microsoft raised its worldwide sales forecast from three million to five million sensors sold by year-end. Kinect launched in North America on November 4, followed by Europe on November 10, and will land next in Asia (November 18) and Japan (November 20). By this holiday, controller-free games and entertainment will reach more than 60,000 retailers in 38 countries with up to 17 Kinect games available.

"We have seen tremendous excitement from customers for Kinect for Xbox 360," said Chris Homeister, senior vice president and general manager of the home entertainment group at Best Buy. "There were lines of customers at our stores all over the country on the night of the Kinect launch, and thousands more are trying it for themselves in our stores every day. It's no surprise Microsoft has already surpassed one million units sold, and we expect Kinect to be one of the must-have gifts at Best Buy this holiday."

For Xbox 360 consumers worldwide, Kinect provides a unique and exciting way to access and interact with entertainment. With just the wave of a hand or the sound of a voice, consumers can play games, stream music, watch HD movies and live ESPN sporting events, and engage in video chat.**

Leading Gaming and Social Entertainment Service
Microsoft also recently announced that the more than 25 million Xbox LIVE members have spent more than one billion hours on the service a month, an average of over 40 hours per member. In addition to Xbox 360 console momentum, and the ever-expanding service and content library of Xbox LIVE, Microsoft released franchise games such as Halo: Reach and Fable III to hordes of devoted fans this fall, as well as announcing that Xbox 360 will be the first console to launch add-on content for all Call of Duty games through 2012, helping drive industry software sales. With Xbox 360, Kinect and Xbox LIVE, Microsoft is proving to be a leading gaming and social entertainment service in the living room and the industry this holiday.
